  •  Yeah, but the momentum is splitting (7+ / 0-)

    just the way Andrew Sullivan wanted it to.  Remember Virtually Normal?  A passionate plea for marriage equality, while dismissing claims for all other forms of equality, such as housing and employment nondiscrimination.  You know, those forms of equality that people born to wealth and privilege -- like Andrew Sullivan -- don't need.

    But hey, we can be cannon fodder now, so it's all good.

        against gay promiscuity until someone outed him as a frequent participant on gay bareback hookup sites.  

        I find him an abhorrent, repulsive creature; and the easiest way for a "Democrat" to lose my respect is for him/her to quote Sully as some kind of moral authority on anything.
